Attention TWKDMS guardians - TWKDMS is supporting an independent study conducted by a neighboring administrator. If you are interested in participating, please read the explanation below: Dear Middle School Families, My name is Carrie Luce and I am a doctoral student at the University of New England. I am looking for 10 parents/guardians of middle school students to participate in an exciting study aimed at understanding family engagement at the middle school level. Your participation may help school staff better understand how middle school and home partnerships improve middle schoolers’ academic outcomes, attendance, and motivation during adolescence. More information can be found in the Participant Information Sheet and Recruitment Letter (links at the bottom of this post). If you would be willing to participate in my study, please email me at cluce@une.edu. Thank you for your consideration. Carrie Luce https://drive.google.com/file/d/17VSIO3lqLjEoP_2xf9JIBilFhhbuMX7q/view https://drive.google.com/file/d/12mQ5yidBotp7M4pEKVLbYhAgAyCjQBW3/view

Today we are sending all TWKDMS students home with a pair of eclipse viewing glasses that are ISO 12312-2 & CE certified, and the manufacturer is on the American Astronomical Society (AAS) approved list of manufacturers. Here is some information from NASA about safe viewing (https://science.nasa.gov/eclipses/safety/). You will notice in the picture below the glasses we sent home, along with another current "bright spot" - the Wrestling Championship trophies. Go Cougars!

Good Morning from RSU 56. Due to the inclement weather we will have a remote learning day today, April 4, 2024. Have a great day.

JUST IN CASE: If we have a remote learning day tomorrow, students will be counted as present if they email their homeroom teacher before 10:00 am for attendance and do the work posted in Google Classroom. Students can reach their teachers using Google Meets at the same time as they would normally have class (links in Google Classroom). IF a student is without power or without the ability to participate, just let us know and it will be excused (email your homeroom teacher or call us at 562-7552). Go Cougars (but seriously, enough snow already)

Attention TWKDMS: IF there is a delay tomorrow, we will STILL have the ice fishing trip and Winter Extravaganza! Region 9 has 2 aluminum ice shacks and several portable fabric shelters set up with different activities such as hot chocolate, smores, chili, and education centers. They have portable outhouses and a warming bus staffed with student leaders hosting cribbage and UNO games. There will be a taxi service provided by Region 9, Mexico Fire, and Paris Fire- each transport is assigned a rescue bogan for your safety. The weather looks favorable and the ice is holding at over ten inches. We look forward to seeing you all for a fun-filled day! Buses leave TWKDMS 30 minutes after the start of school. Go Cougars!

With conditions later this week looking favorable, TWKDMS will be working with the Region 9 Outdoor Leadership program to allow students to attend an Outdoor Extravaganza up in Roxbury! Many other Region 9 programs are coming out to support this adventure. They are planning to have snacks- chili, smores, hot chocolate, etc. In addition to ice fishing, there will be a snowshoe relay race. A winter "fun" day is a TWKDMS tradition, and this year Region 9 is kicking it up a notch. Students have a choice for their day's activities, and anyone going onto the ice will be coming home on Monday with a permission slip (and proper winter clothing will be required to attend). Go Cougars!

Today a group of TWKDMS students joined the Region 9 Outdoor Leadership program for a guided ice-fishing experience. Flags were popping and smiles were everywhere. Thank you to Mr. Rainey and Mr. Longley for helping celebrate the achievements of some of our students with this trip, and if the weather holds cold enough we have some exciting opportunities coming up down the road. Go Cougars!
